Picking Oscar February 26, 2012 by Chris LeBrun

The Oscars is by far my favorite of the awards shows.  As a broadcasting major in college and someone who has done lots of free lance video production, it’s a medium that I’m very familiar with.  Plus, who doesn’t like movies!

So this year, in addition to tweeting live during the Oscars, here are my picks for tonight’s biggest awards.  Comment with your picks anytime before Billy Crystal starts signing (you know he’s going to!) or afterwards to congratulate me on my awesomeness!

(It should be noted here that this year I’ve seen fewer Oscar-nominated films than ever before so I’m probably going to get a ton wrong! But whatever!)
